Dropping In

Dropping In

The rain it dumps the rain it pours,

The rivers are rising bar the door

The graphs we watch the sky we search

We view the river from a dry perch

We wonder where the water goes

Will the ocean receive these awesome flows?

The sea accepts and sends them back

In perfect form the next storm track

And on these rises steelhead swim

To find their way to where they begin

The cycle revolves around again

The highs the lows you know not when

Then it finally stops, that rain on tin

Grab your rod it's dropping in......

In The Trees

Posted by Mark Friday, March 7, 2014 1 comments

Water levels have been all over the board as of late and finding quality fishing levels has been difficult. The low waters of earlier in the winter have been replaced by the continuing flush of rain and snow melt. The fish are moving hard now into the North Fork and can finally rest a little, escaping the relentless pursuit of anglers from the main stem. This high water allows fish movement past much of the bait water and hopefully the relative quiet of the fly-water. Timing as always is everything, and being in the right place at the right time when the water drops is crucial. I love the unpredictability of this time of year and love to feel the warmer water and see the big fish that water brings. Its always a roll of the dice but the rewards are worth it.
